Every comment is welcome. "Criticize a wise guy, the person will love you. Give instruction to the person, he or she will still be wiser." (Adapted from Proverbs 9:8-9) Thank you!
The missing plane or why did the ship sinkĻ
We may get shaken badly pondering
When bad news stuns the media we soon blink
We want an answer but hear a false ring


Our sonís in the soup due to some bad fight
So we dread the phone call from officer
We fear receiving phone calls at midnight
Is parentsí health fine we react in fear


Fears real imagined can demoralize
Unkindly load us with unwanted cares
We sometimes muddle and fail to realize
We face palm and despair at heaps of cares


Fight flee or free is how we will respond
We hope to dodge severe pains and life storms
Imbued with loathsome issues we despond
Defeated we detest the fierce life storms


Bewildering events we canít withstand
Can finite mind grasp God the infinite
Our trust begins when mind canít understand
Come unto Me the living Christ invite ≤


Events condition us to palm our face
Delight or dismay stalks us anyway
The Psalmists urge us to gaze at His face≥
The dear Lord will stand by us all the way

Live by sight life is a foolís paradise
We gradually lose track of our own race
Live by faith life wonít take us by surprise
Eyes firm on Christ we will complete the race⁴


Indeed Heíll give relief from our distress⁵
Indeed He will have mercy on us all
A quiet confidence to face life stress
Let the light of His face fall on us all


O Lord You have the upper hand of life
Help us stay steadfast during earthly life
